It is apparent that climate change is spreading across the globe and even though we have known about its science for decades now, action and adaptability have been slow. Scientists and environmentalists have made it clear that the extreme environmental phenomena we see are enhanced and appear more often as a result of climate change. However policy is still adapting to the new situation. We need to accept that we are not planning for ‘extremes’, but for a ‘new normal’ and therefore various mechanisms need to change or adapt to secure a sustainable future.
